Christon commits to Boise

AHS basketball player to go to Boise State

Senior small forward Cameron Christon committed to play basketball at Boise State. The Boise State Broncos finished last season with a record of 20-12. Christon is a two star basketball recruit.

“I’m really excited for Cam and his family,” Head Coach Jeff McCullough said. “He’s put in a lot of work in the gym and matured both on and off the court.”

Christon was this year’s District 6-6A Offensive MVP who led the varsity basketball team into the regional round of the playoffs, where the team lost to Keller. Christon managed to average 15 points per game while helping the Eagles finish 32-5 in the regular season. Christon also earned MVP of the In-N-Out Burger Allen Holiday Invitational Basketball Tournament as well as the Garland Tournament MVP.

“[Shooting] 50 percent from the 3-point is one of the big stats that really got a lot of colleges’ attention,” McCullough said.

Christon didn’t start his recruiting process until this year but held offers from Northern Iowa and Boise State. In the end, Christon decided that Boise State was the best fit for him.

“I really liked the area; [Boise] itself is really beautiful,” Christon said. “The coaches were a really good fit for me. The player development out there was amazing.”

Christon will be competing with two other Boise State 2017 signees for paying time along with power forward Casdon Jardine (Idaho).

“I think Boise State was a great fit for him and he made the right choice,” McCullough said. “I’m excited about what he’s going to do.”
